Publisher's Summary

The welcome return of Leonid McGill, Walter Mosley's NYC-based private eye, his East Coast foil to his immortal LA-based detective Easy Rawlins. As the Boston Globe raved, "A poignantly real character, [McGill is] not only the newest of the great fictional detectives, but also an incisive and insightful commentator on the American scene."

In the fifth Leonid McGill novel, Leonid finds himself in an unusual pickle of trying to balance his cases with his chaotic personal life. Leonid's father is still out there somewhere, and his wife is in an uptown sanitarium trying to recover from the deep depression that led to her attempted suicide in the previous novel. His wife's condition has put a damper on his affair with Aura Ullman, his girlfriend. And his son, Twill, has been spending a lot of time out of the office with his own case, helping a young thief named Fortune and his girlfriend, Liza.

Meanwhile Leonid is approached by an unemployed office manager named Hiram Stent to track down the whereabouts of his cousin, Celia, who is about to inherit millions of dollars from her father's side of the family. Leonid declines the case, but after his office is broken into and Hiram is found dead, he gets reeled into the underbelly of Celia's wealthy old-money family. It's up to Leonid to save who he can and incriminate the guilty - all while helping his son finish his own investigation; locating his own father; reconciling (whatever that means) with his wife and girlfriend; and attending the wedding of Gordo, his oldest friend.

    "Can't wait until his next book!"

    The narrator was good. I will be looking for some of his other readings. As always, I enjoyed Mr. Mosley's book. Sometimes I find it hard to determine what era he is writing in... This book feels a little like the 70, 80, 90 and 2000.

    "LOVED IT!"

    Prentice Onayemi is a linguistic god and Walter Mosley is the best story teller that I have ever encountered. The combination took me there. Constant energy with lots of suspenseful swagger...I fell in love with Leonid and Twilliam...my heros. There has to be a sequel, there are too many more stories to expose. Nice touches with descriptions of actors as well, they seemed so real. I will never forget that emotions are optional. Thank you Mr. Mosely, your newest fan!

    "You've done it again!"

    All my favorite characters are back and you have woven another complex suspenseful mystery that kept me engaged throughout. I love the narrator--he is awesome! Please come back to Houston soon! The Sisters Sipping Tea literary group (especially myself) love your work!

    "Classic Walter Mosley"
    Would you consider the audio edition of And Sometimes I Wonder About You to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because the voice of the reader adds more breath and more life to an already first rate story.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not really on the edge of my seat, but very very interested, and I did think about the plot when I wasn't listening.

    "A month in the life"

    Interesting story. Leonid is a good old fashioned street detective beneath his thug news. He has wonderful loyal friends who owe him a favor two.

    Story
    "Painful but finished it"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I've listened to quite a few books now and was cringing towards the end of this one, dreading the odd way the performer had everyone who was not the main character-LT-use the same affectation for his/her voice: a halting, hesitant, bordering on a stutter-type voice. LT's voice was smooth and intentionally velvety to further enhance the egomaniac he is. I also got tired of how every single character had to be defined from the first by their skin and eye color (one of which was the kind of green you could see a frog jump out of! Come on!). His humility about his short stature is quickly overlooked due to how strong and quickhe is. I wonder if this character, LT, might be the author's alter-ego in that he's smooth, always ready to fearlessly kick ass against several assailants at a time, and drop everything, including pain , food and sleep to have sex with a gorgeous woman who has begged to be with him.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    There was no doubt at any time how it would end, although it was confusing about his wife and girlfriends, and the role of his long-lost father.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Another reader. Some twists in the plot.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not (unless LT was played by Denzel!) because I'm not into predictable "bust 'em up" movies.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't believe all the positive positive comments about the author and the main character. Maybe it was just the narrator on this one who ruined it for me. Wish I had returned it right away.
